It's pass midnight by a long shit when I finally reach my room. Upon entering, I drunkenly stumble to the bed and let myself fall down on it, face first in my pillow with Grey following behind me and sitting on the bed next to me.
"Are you alright Lou?" He says with a smirk I can't see but know it's there.
"Parties are killing me..." I mumble through the pillow.
I really like having company, but after a few hours, I always feel like I'm going to go crazy and start strangling people if I don't get out in the next five minutes.
"I love you too." He says as he lean down and kiss my neck. I smile to the pillow and his hand move to my side gently before he being to tickle me ferociously. Under the assault, I begin to seize around and laugh my spleen out.
"Okay, oh my god, I surrender!" I yell out at him, pleading for him to stop.
He let go of my side, now sore from the exercise, and leans down me, his lips coming to mine. We continue where we had to leave earlier, first with our lips and then with our tongues join the fray. For a moment, time is suspended for us as we share our love.
"You know, I can hardly believe it's been almost a year since we first met." I whisper as he breaks the embrace.
"It'll be a year exactly next Monday." He claims as he sprawl on the bed next to me, his gorgeous gray eyes plunged into mine.
I smile at him. "You always remember all the details." I whisper back simperingly. "But I think you forgot to give me a gift." I playfully accuse him. Not that I would even care if he had.
"Sorry, but I'm not going to disappoint you, just close your eyes."
Seeing the very serious look on his previously very charming face, I oblige, closing my eyes. Slowly, he takes my hand into his and deposit a kiss onto it before gently slipping something on my finger.
"It's alright, you can look now." He whisper in my ear, letting go of my hand.
Carefully, I open my eyes and look at my hand, where a gold band now rests... I take a moment to register that new information and an even longer one to process it.
"You... You can't be serious..." I mumble.
I look at him and he looks back, his eyes shining, almost pleading for me to answer. I try to speak, but only my lips move, the sound remain in my throat, I choke on the words.
"Please, say yes..." He begs of me.
I feel my eyes tear up and I toss myself in his arms, holding on tighter, my arms gripping stronger than a crocodile. "Of course, I say yes!"
He holds me back in his arms tightly and never let go of the night, eventually he and I both fall asleep still fully clothed and with me holding on to him...
